Video of Maine-Based NHL Hockey Ref Goes Viral [VIDEO]
A Portland, Maine-based NHL hockey ref's dramatic delivery of a ruling on a controversial play has made him an internet star!
Wes McCauley is a native of Ontario, who now lives in Portland, Maine. He's refereed hundreds of NHL games, including the past three Stanley Cup Finals. But all that work didn't bring the kind of attention that he's getting from one turn at the mic.
Monday night, while refereeing a game in San Jose between the Sharks and the Los Angeles Kings, McCauley passed along the ruling for a controversial play. And it was the dramatic flair with which he said 'We got a goal!' that has caused a video to go viral. Great enthusiasm!
